‘To Any Reader’ could be the start of the poem, the title or indeed both. There is cause for debate as there is no clear break or jump from the title to the actual body of the poem; the words flow. This is a more open way of starting a poem, though it may be unconventional. As a contrast to How to be Gravity, the poem’s title is more relaxed and vague which also foreshadows what we will see as we read on. The theme within the two poems is the relationship between a mother and her child.
In this essay I will be analyzing the poet Julio Noboa Polanco with his poem “identity”, how different he is to other poets, and lastly how he used his poetic elements with his poem. Though, Julio only made one poem, but with that one poem, it shows so many about his writing and literature skills. From reading all these poet’s work, it was very hard to choose which one to analyze. But for some reason Julio Noboa Polanco stood out more. In his poem “Identity” talks about
Second person point of view provides a more didactic tone because the speaker is trying to reach the reader by incorporating them into the poem. This didactic tone continues as the speaker addresses the “everything” that surrounds the narrator and wants them to “[k]eep off” (Rich728). A didactic tone is effective in this moment because the
One of them is using a very indirect metaphorical way of conveying their message, while the other uses specific examples. Also one chose to write a poem and the other chose to write a novel. Orwell chose to write his story from third person perspective and Niemoller chose to write his story talking directly how it had an effect on him.

The descriptive language in the poem described certain mood for the reader to appeal the reader.

The repetition of the phrase seems to show the poet speaker’s stubbornness towards the subject of giving up and yielding to the impending death. It impose the meaning that the poet speaker does not want people to just give up

My thought process for this was that I didn’t want to eventually go into a career that had no relation to my ambitions or talents. Roethke also had a similar awakening in his Poem. This awakening is evident in both the title of the poem, and in lines 10 to 11 when he states “Light takes the Tree; but who can tell us how? The lowly worm climbs up a winding stair” (Roethke 10-11). What I perceived at what he meant by this was that the Tree had some relation to the narrator and the lighting could have been the spark that made him realize that he was not going in the correct path that he wanted to go into.
Ray Bradbury uses imagery in “If Only We Have Taller Been” to show how people reach for their goals. When the author rhymes the story to give the poetic flow, readers are able to see what the author is trying to show. The rhyming may not be literal, but that way, readers can imagine what the poem trys to tell. In the last section,the goal is finally achieved. We can tell that the characters had to push themselves to reach this goal because it says “Hoping an inch of Good is worth a pound of
